One of the heaviest babies in Britain has been born - to a mum who asked for NO pain relief.

Danielle Davies from Morecambe gave birth to Harley, who arrived at more than 11lbs, following an eight-hour labour.

Danielle had insisted on a natural birth - not realising she was about to deliver such a massive baby.

Midwives were so shocked they had to weigh him twice.

Newborn Harley from weighs 11lb 5oz, and already fits into clothes designed for babies aged three to six months.

New mum Danielle, 21, said: ''All the midwives couldn't believe how big he was, he was the talk of the hospital.

''They had to put him on the scales a number of times, they said he was difficult to weigh because it was off their official charts.''

Danielle, who already has a 19-month-old daughter Layla, stunned staff during the eight hour natural birth, which she managed to endure without any pain relief despite pushing for two hours.

She said: ''I just cant believe I did it on gas and air, I keep wondering how I managed.''

Baby Harley was born at 1.13am on April 10.

Dad Daniel Goldstone, 23, a security guard, said: 'I was nervous because Danielle was in so much pain and it shocked me but I wasn't expecting my son to be so big.

'I'm proud of her and all the staff were brilliant.'
